Joliet, Illinois is home to one of the most haunted places in the state, Rialto Square Theatre. Come explore its mystery with Haunted Journeys.
The Rialto Theatre started as a vaudeville movie palace in 1926. The lobby was meant to remind patrons of the Hall of Mirrors in the Palace of Versailles. It had a dome in the building and large, hand-cut crystal chandeliers. Sculptures and art were on display throughout the theatre. By the mid-1970’s it was facing possible demolition but rescued by local citizens. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and now considered one of the top 10 theatres in the country.
Employees and patrons see an apparition of a pretty young lady in her twenties. Some think it is the spirit of a performer from the past. There is a couple seen in the balcony that, according to legend, fell to their death from the balcony. Strange noises, objects moving on their own and being poked by a finger are some of the other activities that are reported.
